Mandaly.. this is my question. When do I say 'chimen' and when do I say 'chemen'? When do I say 'abiye' and when do I say 'biye' Is there a rule? Why are there so many ways to say just one single word?

It's a variation.  In some regions of Haiti, people are used to saying 'chimen' and in other regions people say 'chemen'.  Or, people from the Haitian Capital usually say 'abiye' and some people from the countryside say 'biye'.
